Tribute to Ravelry

One of the blessings of being unable to move a great deal presently is that I have had the time to be still and update my Ravelry pages. It took two days as I have not posted any projects or progress for more than a year.

That I have not kept my pages updated has made me feel quite ashamed as this is one of the most valuable resources that Ravelry offers. One is able to look at the same project seen through the eyes of many different crafters and marvel at the ingenious ways that these amazing people show their individually and skill. It is awesome.

I use Ravelry a great deal. It is wonderful to find out more about a pattern or a yarn that I want to use or buy. The catalogue of free patterns available is amazing. I check out new patterns and and often download purchases into my library. I visit friend's pages to see what they are making. I follow discussion groups of podcasters. There are, I am sure, at least a dozen other ways to benefit from this wonderful site, as I am still learning all the time.

I find a kaleidoscope of inspiration, sometimes overwhelmed by all that is on offer.Ravelry is a fabulous site and a great community of sharing. My life would be all the poorer if it did not exist.

I feel that I have been a poor community member as I have already received so much for the little that I have given. I will endeavour to be a community member so that the richness of sharing what is created can be sustained, continued and enjoyed by all who use this site.

Thank you to all at Ravelry for the amazing work and development that you have done.
